Bruce Springsteen Plays Shortest Concert Ever, at Nine Minutes

Bucking the trend of playing for more than four hours at many of his shows, Bruce Springsteen has thrown a curveball by playing a nine-minute set of cover songs at the Hunter Valley’s Hope Estate Vineyard on Saturday night.

The E Street Band, seemingly unimpressed with the change of direction, walked off stage mid-way through a cover of Cyndi Lauper’s Girls Just Want to Have Fun.

“I felt my long performances filled with my own personal back catalogue of hits was getting stale, and that now was the time for me to reinvent myself with an intimate set of cover songs lasting less than 10 minutes,” Springsteen said. “Mind you, I did start wine tasting at 4am in the Hunter Valley before the show, so my judgement may have been a bit rocky.”

Concert goers didn’t have much to say about the new approach, with most passing out due to alcohol poisoning between the warm up acts featuring Diesel and Jet.
